I checked out 'The Dresden Files' last night. Afraid I have to disagree with the OP. I found it trite and overly familiar. Like a cross between 'Buffy' and 'Charmed' without the silly charm of the latter or the wit and strong performances of the former. Like 'Eureka', it seemed an uninspired effort and not nearly good enough to claim an hour a week of my time. But my biggest worry is that it's so weak that it will negatively affect the best show on TV that immediately follows it ('BSG'), and which certainly needs some ratings help. Not a good move by SciFi, I'm afraid.
